Hawkeye Star Describes Clint & Kate's 'Beautifully Intimate' Dynamic

Clint Barton and Kate Bishop's unique relationship will be one of the focal points of the upcoming Hawkeye series on Disney+.

At a press conference attended by CBR, Hawkeye stars Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld answered questions about how their characters come together in the series and how the tragedies they faced during the Blip will inform the duo's dynamic. "You know, I don't operate -- I suppose it was survivor guilt, outside just dealing with the loss," Renner said. "Then, there's a lotta things that are lost. You know what I mean? It's addressed in the show, which I think is beautifully intimate. It brings our characters closer together, as well as the audience, I think. There's a lotta weight that's carried. There might be a seemingly veneer of grumpiness in this resting face, right, in the show."

While joking about Hawkeye's role as the grandpa of the MCU, Renner highlighted how Bishop's youthful optimism complimented Clint's own grumpy demeaner. The actor said, "It's managing losses, is the superhero game, and the lightness and brightness that Hailee's character brings in, it kinda counteracts that and comes in and kinda get it to level out some. So, it's pretty cathartic, and I think quite beautiful."

Steinfeld echoed this sentiment, while highlighting how underneath Kate and Clint's playful banter, the two truly care for one another and form a genuine friendship over the course of Hawkeye. Steinfeld explained, "Kate sees Clint as someone, despite his past, as someone who wants to do good and wants to help people, and that's all she wants to do in life. She's inspired by him and motivated by him and wants to be at his level and is very over-eager, and he puts up with a lot. But she really delivers at the end of the day."

In Hawkeye, Clint Barton's past comes back to haunt him when an aspiring archer named Kate Bishop begins fighting crime in the streets of New York City while wearing a costume similar to the one he wore as Ronin. After the two realize that they have similar goals, they face off against a wealth of threats including the Tracksuit Draculas, an assassin known as the Clown and the mysterious Echo, aka Maya Lopez, played by actor Alaqua Cox. While it remains to be seen what role Cox's character will have in Hawkeye, Disney has already announced plans for an Echo spinoff series in the near future. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige claims that the events of Hawkeye will directly set up Echo, with both Renner and Steinfeld rumored to reprise their roles for the series.

Hawkeye will debut with a two-episode season premiere on Nov. 24, exclusively on Disney+.
